It might not notice this button action when in standby. (screensaver)
It shouldn't matter when the device is actually turned off entirely. (blank screen followed up by bootup sequence when you turn it back on)
Is it safe to hot change the SD card with the unit turned on ? Maybe it is designed for that.
